Post-Hays code, some Fleischer cartoons began to "take the moral high-ground," and attempted to show children the consequences of misbehavior. This trend is especially to be seen in many of the Color Classics, but they had the Boopster doing it too, in a few episodes like this one.
I do not much enjoy preachy cartoons; for me, they take on an aspect of propaganda. While many of them threaten ridiculous consequences that an infant wouldn't believe, this one, at least, has a valid message: If you antagonize enough people, eventually one of them will bite back. Two stars (instead of one), for that.
[Update:] My thanks also to BoopBoopaddoop for reviewing my review rather than the cartoon, for setting me on the straight and narrow, for misreading my remarks, and getting into a twist over nothing. My opinions are neither "right" nor "wrong," they are merely my opinions, written from my POV. If you place your nerves under other people's feet, it should come as no surprise when they get stepped on.

Dark moon = Wrong ^_^
This gets a 4 Stars <3
Betty Boop is babysitting her nephew junior!
he is being a bad boy and wont go to bed, so betty tells him a story which he defiantly belives
Dark moon you cannot say that an infant wouldnt belive becuse its a cartoon these characters are not real, the studios who produced these cartoons could have done whatever storyline they had wished.
just becuse the pre hays code had came in doesnt mean betty boop should be all about sex, sex and more sex...
i think its great that they tamed betty boop
i liked her past days as a vaudiville singer, but come on now like if she could do that forever...
now in these days shes a icon which goes on the shelf.. shes mainly antiques
